Every Sunday I will be posting an encouraging message for you to start your new week with. I post my first one today. The post is called Happy Valentine’s Day. I hope you enjoy it and find encouragement for it. My Pastor’s birthday is this Friday and I will be back to post for that.
Have a great day and Happy Valentine’s Day. I love you all very much. Always in my thoughts and prayers.
I wanted to say thank you for those that liked my post about I decided… I can’t tell you how much it means to me. Thanks Shanky Salty, Lavender and Levity, and Jas Krish for the photo support and comments. It means the world to me. It took a lot to share those photos do it’s great that you supported me. Please keep me in mind if you know anyone looking to join me on my journey. I’m paying this forward and would love to help others.
It’s Valentine’s Day once again and I find myself single. I used to hate Valentine’s day. I have for the most part been single. But after the last time I broke up with my boyfriend in 2017 I committed to staying single. I have been single now for almost four years. I decided last year that I was ready to start dating again. I just wanted to thank God for the couples he brought into my life to show me what a Godly marriage should look like. To Tressie Hunt and her husband Carl. Basha and Mike Zuhr. Pastor Steven Furtick and his wife Holly. Stephanie Hutton and her husband Pastor David. Stephen and Sally Saunders.You guys were chosen by God to show me what a Godly marriage should look like and what I want in a husband. Thank you for your willingness to be used by God. I love you all very much. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
These couples mean a lot to me and I love them very much. They inspire me to keep staying single and waiting for the right person.
I hope this encourages you. I hope it encourages you to wait for the right person to come along. I hope it encourages you when you have those days when you think you’ll never met the right person. I love you and for today I’ll be your Valentine. I know there are some of you that today will be a struggle so allow me to be your Valentine. Have a great day!!
I decided on January 1st that I needed to make some Health changes. So I started an amazing health program with a free health coach. Yesterday I went into work and my supervisor asked me what I’m doing because she has already noticed my weight loss of 14 lbs. I decided at that point that I was going to pay this gift forward and help others achieve optimal wellness also. It’s a great feeling. Let me know if you know anyone looking to join me…”
Today I have decided to be a health coach and pay it forward. I have been wanting to do this, but I let everyone else and the devil scare me not to do it. Well today I say no more. I’m not going to let the devil or anyone else scare me. I’m stepping into this with God’s confirmation that I am supposed to do this. I can’t wait to get started.
To you who is reading this I am going to ask you a question. Are there dreams you want to achieve? Are there things you want to do, but you haven’t for one reason or another? Well start doing them. Take it one day at a time and start dreaming and achieving your dreams.
Hi ya’ll I’m back and glad to be back. I have decided to call this My Journey, my path the encouraging station. I will be posting blog post full of encouragement to start your day. I’m going to try it once a week and do it on Mondays. I can’t wait to get started. I hope you will join me. I think we could all use a little encouragement to help us get through our day don’t you? Hope to see you there.
Hey everybody. How are you guys? Life couldn’t get better. January is turning out to be a good month for me. I’m so happy. I am going to hired on by the company I work for. I’m truly excited. An answer to prayer is what this is. I’m truly happy. I’ve been waiting and waiting. I finally got all my hours and they are going to hire me. I’m truly excited. Tammy gave me all the paper work to fill out and I’m going to give it back to her on Monday. Monday is my official hire date. I can’t believe that starting Monday I will be a full-time employee with Trotter’s Sewing Company. I’m so excited. I will also be getting benefits too. They are supposed to be really good too. I’ll have to wait 90 days for them so sometime in March I will have them. I’m really excited about them. I have several doctor’s appointments I have put off because I don’t have insurance. So I’m thrilled about that.
In other good news I have had a chance to visit some of ya’ll’s blogs and I have to say. You guys are so creative. I have truly enjoyed visiting ya’ll’s blogs. It’s been great, good, and such a blessing. You guys have given me some ideas for my blog. I’m thinking either a “Morning pep talk” which is where I would share an encouraging message with you to help you get your day started. I’m still throwing around names for what I would call it. I’m also thinking about doing something like “A day in the life” either doing my own life or if you guys would want to do participate please let me know. I’m throwing around ideas so I haven’t made a decision. If any of you have ideas you think would help please feel free to comment below.
Today I am getting the rest of my to do list done and then I’m going on a shopping adventure. I’m really excited about it.
I have other news, but I will let you guys know more when I get some other details in the works. Stay tuned.
This will be the most personal post I have ever posted, but I feel safe with you guys that I want to share this. Have you ever felt unloved? Whether its by your family, your friends, or other people not related to you. That can include co-workers or just a random strangers.
I feel unloved. I feel unloved by my family all the time. I feel that they look at me and see what a big failure I am and they never see anything that I do to try and be different. I want to be loved by them, but that means I have to be accepted by their standards. I have to be hurt, abused, manipulated, and raked over the coals just to be accepted. How can I put myself through that? How can I? I mean is it because they are family and I want their love and acceptance. Is it because the devil is tricking me and making me feel unloved? Is it because of how my dad treated me? Is it because of my dad that I can’t accept love from anyone else. Honestly I wish I could have an answer and it all be tied up like a nice little bow on a Christmas present, but that’s not so. Let me start at the beginning and tell you what triggered this for me.
I was sharing with my sister Megan today about my book and how I had a friend to read it and she thinks it’s good. I hope to have it published soon. If anyone would be happy for me I thought it would have been her. I never share my dreams with my mom because she doesn’t think anything good will come of it and she makes me feel like shit to even have dreams. Well here’s what happened when I share with her my good news. Immediately she asked questions. She immediately gave me advice and told me what I should do and what I shouldn’t do. She wasn’t nice about it either. She didn’t say it in a sisterly way. She said it just like my dad would have if I shared it with him. It hurt me to my core. I listened to other videos and tried to convenience myself that I was okay. I did what I normally would do to numb the pain, but for the first time in my life it didn’t do anything. It didn’t numb the pain. So instead I talked to God, listened to sermons, listened to music, and just sat with God. I had a good cry and now I feel better. My mom and sister are talking and they are hanging out as I write this. I feel better now that I have cried and shared this with you. I want to cry some more, but I will hold it in for now.
In time I will figure it out. I will understand why I feel this way and when I do I’ll be set free. God is still good, still in control, and is still Jireh, more than enough.
Good afternoon afternoon. I’m tired. I went shopping for my sister. My mom and I went together and I enjoyed it. It was nice to spend time with my mom. We talked a lot about Megan, but it’s good to vent. I’m done with making my to do list and I’m working on that. I’m almost done. I’ve got a few things left, but I’m going to rest. We got our stimulus check today and I’m excited, but anxious at the same time. Right now money is tight, but Jireh (God) will provide and I’m leaning in on him. God is good. What are your plans today? Leave a comment.
As I posted before one of my new year’s goals is to change the direction of my blog. I’m planning to start visiting your blogs and seeing what you guys are up to. I will still be writing, but I want to start visiting you guys and getting some ideas for my blog. I want to change the direction of my blog. I’m not sure where to go with it so I’m going to get some ideas from you. I really want to visit your blogs and connect with you. I have so many of you I have never been to your blog and I want to see it so bad. I’m looking forward to visiting you soon.
I love you and have a great day. You’re always in my thoughts and prayers.
2020 has been quite a year for all of us. It started on a good note Jan-Feb. Then bam March came and so did the pandemic. From March-December we’ve had a rise of cases, a vaccine, and a downfall of cases. We’ve had to social distance and not see our families on holidays and we watched loved ones either get the virus or die from the virus. School, school events, graduations, and all events all around the world. We had our state closed down. We had to wear masks and use hand sanitizer. I could go on, but I think you get the idea. I know it’s been a hard year for all of us. I want to show you how this year hasn’t been all bad.
2020 was not a waste
Jan-Aug-I worked for the state, gave my notice to the state and found another job at Diverse Staffing. Walked out and found another job.
Sept.- Started working at Trotter’s Sewing Company through The Agency
Sept-Dec.- I am still at Trotter’s Sewing Company.
Aug.-Dec.- I attended a new church called Elevation Church and I experienced a lot of personal growth
Oct.-Dec.- I moved in with my sister Megan and I experienced a lot of personal growth
I saw the real me. I didn’t like what I saw. I’ve lost weight, I said goodbye to a friend, I gained more friends and family, I got closer to my family, I found a job I love, and I could go on, but I think you get the idea. 2020 was not a waste. I know some say it has divided us, but I don’t think so. I think it’s brought us closer together. I think we are more united now then we ever have been. I am finishing with God’s favor. 2020 is was not a waste. I got something out of it. I hope you did too. Leave me a comment and let me know what you have learned from 2020.
